Located just outside Indianapolis in Brownsburg, Ind., Mercury Marine’s new global distribution center opened late this week. According to a press release from the Fond du Lac, Wis.-headquartered marine engine and accessories company, the current Fond du Lac distribution center will be repurposed to expand production capacity.
Officially opened this week, Mercury Marine’s new global distribution center in Indiana is simply massive.
The new 512,000-square-foot facility reportedly will create 350 jobs in its first full year of operation.
“We are excited to officially open our new centralized distribution center which will have an immediate and positive impact to our global channel partners,” said Chris Drees, Mercury Marine president, in the release. “We leveraged the most advanced distribution technologies in conveyance, scanning, and packaging to move products through the warehouse efficiently and accurately to better serve our global customers.”
Products received, warehoused and shipped in the new distribution center include engine maintenance tools, lubricants, and service-related parts and accessories. The new facility’s volume—18 million cubic feet of space—is more than three-and-a-half times greater than that of the former Fond du Lac distribution center.
“We’re thrilled Mercury Marine chose to complete this major expansion in Brownsburg,” said Travis Tschaenn, the president of the Brownsburg Town Council. “This expansion helps to enrich our diverse business community while also providing key capital investment.”
